MUMBAI: Justin Bieber has confirmed that he will be headlining a festival in Birmingham this August. This will be his first appearance on the British stage since his 2013 tour which suffered with a lot of difficulties.

Bieber will be performing at the fusion festival which takes place in the city's Cofton Park.

The 'Baby' singers last event at London upset fans after he started one concert late, leaving some of them stranded and others having to go home shortly after it began, reports mirror.co.uk.

Another event was disrupted when he left the stage mid-song after complaining of being "light of breath".

The 21 year-oldhad to explain himself after he lashed out at a photographer following what he said had been a "rough week" for him.

On Twitter, Bieber later claimed he had "let the paps get the best of me".

But it seems the Canadian crooner has now made his peace with the UK.

In a statement the singer said, "I love the UK and I'm really excited to be playing at Fusion this year. There are some great artists on the line-up so to be headlining the Friday night is a real honour."
